Hand weights can be used for Tabata and Pilates. I will be introducing them into classes very soon.

There are two places to get your hand weights from at the moment. They do sell out very quickly so it’s best to check online first. You can get delivery if you wish.

Argos has a pair of 1kg weights for £5.99, 2kg for £5.99

Decathlon has a pair og 0.5 kg for 2.99. 1kg for £4.99. 1.5kg for £6.99, 2kg for £9.99

I am using 1.5 kg but do find these quite tough for arm exercises. I will be using 1kg when I remember to bring them back from my locker at work!

I have just got back from walking Ted in the wind and drizzle! Where has the summer gone?
I miss it and am sure you all miss it too!
Let’s hope that we have some sun next week.

There is not much information this week.

I have finished working at Wareham recycling centre. It was sad to say goodbye. I really enjoyed the work and saying hello to so many clients from the sports centre. It was lovely to see some of you too. 

I hope that you are all keeping well.

Sue is going back to work now so we won’t see her at Saturday tabata anymore. 

I appreciate that some of you will be in the same situation. I hope those of you who can’t attend will catch up another time. Tabata will be on the YouTube site.

I had a message from Sue Ford. She is fine. She found our tabata class on YouTube and has done a few classes and enjoyed them!

Your replays will be sent in another email following this.

I am still looking for T-shirt’s and other merchandise. As soon as I have news I will let you know.

Remember that you can now leave me messages in the chat box in class and they will be sent straight to my email inbox. I will then answer them as quickly as I can.

The winner of the competition on facebook hasn’t replied to our messages. It’s pretty strange – we won’t be welcoming her now. I just hope there is a reason and she may come forward soon!!

That’s it for now.

Keep well and fit!

Weekly Newsletter 23 June

That’s another week gone! 

These weeks are flying by!

What a hot week!! It’s the first time I have had to rewrite the classes to fit with conditions. I hope you all managed to cope with the heat. It doesn’t look like we will have to worry next week!

If you know anyone who would like to attend the Saturday Tabata, it’s free, they just need to ask for a link.

We have a few snippets of news for you this week.

* The government have decided not to open gyms yet. We are affected as that also means no classes. As the schools will have broken up for the summer holidays by the time we are told that it is safe, Milborne St Andrew classes will not restart until September. We will wait until the school say we are allowed. As far as Bindon is concerned, I will inform you by the end of July. The Durberville, Wool –  I haven’t heard anything yet but I hope to hear in a few weeks time. I will keep you posted.

* We have new newsletter members, welcome to Rob and Erica! We are now sending the newsletter to our members who only come to Saturday Tabata. Welcome Di, Chris, Alison and Roger. Here you will find out what is happening at the sports centre too.

* We have the winner of the competition too. Her name is Ann. We will welcome her on Monday to class.

* I have now enabled questions from the comments box of the live session to be sent to my email. If you would like to ask a question there then it will automatically be sent to me. This starts from 1st July.
